You CAN Write an Infosec Book! with Ted Demopoulos
Reportedly, 81 percent of people want to write a book, and that number may be even higher in infosec as the field is rapidly evolving. And although almost any of us can, very few will. In this talk we cover how to write a book, what to write about, options to get it published, and how to get people to read it so that it matters. We destroy the many myths of writing a book such as you need to be a good writer to write a good book, you need to be a mind blowing expert, and you need to sell a lot of copies to make an impact. Writing a book is an incredibly rewarding experience. You can write a book. It is not that hard! If Ted Demopoulos, who historically was a horrible writer and always hated it, has written several, then you can, too.
